Fargen Amplification to debut its Townhouse Micro-Sized Amp at Summer NAMM

Fargen Amplification has announced the newest addition to its lineup of boutique guitar amplifiers, the Townhouse.

Fargen Amplification - TownhouseFollowing on the success of its first micro-sized amp the Micro Plex, Fargen has built its counterpart, also a 5 Watt Class A design, hand-wired and made in the USA.

It’s two-way Decade Switch covers the 50’s and 60’s, with vintage tweed- and brownface-inspired tones.

“I wanted to add another super-compact amp to our line”, says Ben Fargen, founder. “This amp is extremely pedal-friendly, and offers the player in essence two amps in one, for $999, which is very reasonable for a boutique amp of this caliber.”

The Townhouse incorporates a USA-built transformer, vintage 60’s style caps and carbon comp resistors, and DC filaments for ultra quiet operation. Its single power tube socket can be used with any octal power tube without re-bias. It measures 16.5”x9”x7’ and can be paired with a matching 1×12” speaker cabinet.

Fargen will also debut the Pete Anderson Tumbleweed pedal, as well as a slanted 1×12” extension cab for the Micro Plex amp, which can now be played in a full stack configuration, including the head, slanted cab and standard cab.
